Trump: North Korea Has to Address Human Rights for There to Be Peace

President Trump told reporters on Tuesday that if peace on the Korean Peninsula is to be accomplished, then North Korea will have to address its human rights violations.

ABC’s Jonathan Karl asked Trump whether he still believes that North Korea has more brutally oppressed its people than any other regime on earth.

“I believe it’s a rough situation over there. There’s no question about it. And we did discuss it today pretty strongly. I mean, knowing what the main purpose of what we were doing is de-nuking, but discussed it in a pretty good length,” Trump said. “We’ll be doing something on it, it’s rough. It’s rough in a lot of places by the way.”

Trump then said that, besides the issue of denuclearization, North Korea’s human rights violations was one of the primary topics he discussed with Kim Jong-un during their historic meeting.

Karl followed up by asking Trump whether North Korea needs to end its human rights violations in order to bring about peace on the Korean Peninsula.

“I think it will change, yes, I think it probably has to, but I think it will. Yes. Thank you, thank you very much,” Trump said.
